City's First Multi-Purpose Trail Complete

Mayor Don L. Robart is pleased to announce the opening of the City's first multi-purpose trail on Wyoga Lake Road. "The Wyoga Lake road Bike and Hike trail is a fabulous new asset to the busy Steels Corners / Wyoga Lake Road area", commented the Mayor.

The Wyoga Lake Multi-Purpose Trail is the City's fourth major infrastructure project to be completed with Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds. The first phase of the 8' wide bike and hike trail begins at Steels Corners Road and travels along the east side of Wyoga Lake Road to Hardman Drive. When the second phase is complete, the trail will continue north to State Rd where it will join the National Park. The ultimate goal is to create multi-purpose trails and bike lanes throughout the city that will eventually tie into the trails of the MetroParks and National Park.

The mixed-use hamlet located at the intersection of Steels Corners and Wyoga Lake Road is bustling with new construction such as the Wing Warehouse and new office complexes. Attractive landscaping and a decorative retaining wall were constructed along the trail to add to the rural character of the streetscape.

The new trail also has a very useful purpose. "The safety of our residents is paramount." commented Mayor Robart. Residents living in the area of Wyoga Lake Road as well as the students and faculty of Walsh Jesuit High School and the Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy can use the trail and feel safe while traveling via foot or bicycle to and from their destinations.
